GBPN is leading an important initiative in India aimed at decarbonising the residential building sector.
JINDA (meaning Alive in Hindi) is composed of a state-based alliance of five local experts who bring rich experience across a diverse range of focus areas.
Together, they will support the Indian government by aiding mechanisms to ensure adoption, compliance, and enforcement of the Energy Conservation Building Code (also known as Eco Niwas Samhita – ENS) for Affordable Housing.
GBPN’s Senior Advisor in India, Gautam Nagar, said the project was a pivotal initiative that would provide important learnings for the whole country.
“The first state identified for review under the project is Gujarat,” He said.
“We expect the work carried out by the JINDA alliance in Gujarat will provide insights and approaches that can be adopted and tailored to regions elsewhere in India.
“I’m very excited to be working with a team of experts of this calibre on such an important project.”
